1.     Company Matters

Discussions are ongoing between lawyers representing the Owners Associations on the resort and the Judicial Administrator Dr Carlos Inacio. Both sides are keen to ensure that the assets of GSA are protected in the event of the company being unable to continue due to ongoing losses made worse by the Covid-19 pandemic. The principal asset being the golf course. This is in the interests of the Creditors of GSA, the staff, the Owners, the golf members and the area of Vila do Bispo and surrounding towns and villages.

The FPGC golf committee are receiving regular updates and will keep members informed as matters develop.
